September 12, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

The disinfectant, which can also be used for other viruses, is still a work in process.

GAIL: ONCE APPLIED, THE DISINFECTED SPRAY CREATES A TEMPORARY FILL.

An Orlando technology company is working with the University of Central Florida to come up with a new disinfectant against the coronavirus.

In April, Drake, who owns the Orlando-based Kismet Technologies, reached out to her doctoral advisor during her graduate studies at UCF and a UCF virologist. The trio came up with what they call a rapid-acting, longer lasting COVID-19 disinfectant. Once applied to a hard surface, their disinfectant spray creates a temporary film. "And what's nice about the particle, it's synthetic because it's a particle, it's not a chemical that dries up and runs off, it can continue to disinfect over and over again,” Drake said. Drake said there are no harsh chemicals and everything in it is safe to use and has been used in other EPA-approved products for disinfectants. The disinfectant, which can also be used for other viruses, is still a work in process.
